This is the first English translation from a 1982 Portuguese guide to building just about everything needed for human habitation. Van Lengen is the founder of the Bio-Architecture and Intuitive technology school in Brazil. In clear prose, illustrated on almost every page, he explains how to build a home, provide power, water and sanitation, plant a garden and live compatibly with the environment. Many of the examples are intended for people living in areas where, through isolation or poverty, building materials need to be found locally. He arranges the sections on home building by climate and gives several alternate methods for power and sanitation depending on local conditions. The only question is why did it take so long for this immensely useful book to appear in English? Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
